Hello Tom, when the peacock spreads his feathers those pretty colors appear. Have a nice evening my friend.

In Key Biscayne, there is a park filled with peacocks. It's amazing to see them spread their feathers. Lovely haiku, Tom. Winning wishes for you! Hugs, Carolyn

It's always so amazing to me that in humans, it's the woman so beautifully arrayed. but in the animal kingdom it's often the opposite. Well done.

Thank you Andrea, yes, strange how that is, many animals are like that. Tom

so beautiful...my oldest grandson had a peacock show up at his home after his grandfather passed...it's been living on their property ever since, we tease that it's his grandfather because it's always looking in the house, screaming when people arrive from the tree and dropping his beautiful feathers everywhere... love this one and the memory it brought forth :) hugs

Thank you Sandra, yes they are quite loud though but beautiful to see when they fan out those feathers, many keep them like guard dogs to alert them to strangers. Glad it gave you happy memories. Tom

They can be a little hostile when the're making their move. Saw one in the zoo recently, try to attack a child who was standing there watching. Nice imagery in your Haiku Tom, good luck in the contest....Maria Hugs

Thank you Maria, I've heard they can be aggressive and some people keep them for security purposes rather than a guard dog. Enjoy your weekend. Tom

That photo speaks volumes in your splendid imagery--peacocks are simply magnificent --and so is your poem, Tom
